    So sorry to see RC leave. Enjoyed meal as usual. Have eaten at RC's in LA, Vegas(2), Baton Rouge, Dallas, Pittsburgh, and here. All the same quality. Now I'll have to find a new place to eat steak. As I told the server, the meal was average - for RC, excellent compared to anywhere else.

    Celebrating a birthday with all the food/wine pairing I could enjoy. Only think that kept it from being absolutely a perfect evening was the arrival of the entree within in a minute of receiving the appetizer/salads at our table. By the expression that crossed the wait staff's face, this was unexpected. We naturally put the cooler dishes aside and tucked into our steaks - which were perfect! Going from a filet mignon with a full-bodied Cabernet Sauvignon back to an Ahi Tuna with a medium bodied Sauvignon Blanc was not a perfect order of flavored in the palette. Table staff are attentive and seem to time their visits to the table appropriately. Great selection of wines both by the bottle and by the glass.

  • Restaurant Closing

    Dined on 3/19/2014
    My understanding is that this restaurant is closing by the end of this month. Service was great, but selections (food and wine) were a joke. Asked for three different wines before we found one that they had. Ordered three cuts of steaks but they were out of one and substituted a different cut for one that we had ordered that was $40 more than the one we selected - and the extra $40 was on the bill. We went there often, always liked it - but deeply disappointed this last time. Check to see if it is open and if they have a full inventory before you go.

    I was disappointed. The service started out great but after the food was delivered, it was non-existant. There is no presentation. Just a steak on a white plate. Not even a sprig of parsley. Lower end restaurants have better presentation. The mushrooms were tasteless and my husband's steak was hard to cut. I am not sure if things were less than great due to the fact they are closing, but I would not recommend Ruth's Chris to anyone.

    We had to have one last filet from Ruth's Chris before they close their KC location at the end of the month. The only drawback to this visit was our original table location. Right at the entrance to the main dining room, asked for another table but would take some time to get another set up so we decided to stay. Then, they started seating a group on the patio and access was directly by our table. A keenly aware individual recognized that this wasn't good so they offered to move us to a different table. Great service recovery! As always, the food and service were excellent.

    The food was fantastic, as expected. What we didn't expect was the noise level. Even sitting in a booth at the edge of the dining room, we had to yell at each other to be heard, and sometimes, even that wasn't enough. It also didn't help that the maitre d' was making the rounds, telling people next to us (on both sides) why the restaurant is closing, and his future plans, in a rather loud voice.

    It's been several years since I went to Ruth Chris. We walked in for our reservation and they moved us immediately to our table. On the table they had a Happy Anniversary cars signed by several of the employees and roses decorating the table. My wife loved it! Excellent food, extremely great T-Bone - the filet side melted like butter!! Easily the best I've ever had. Amazing and attentive wait staff. Could not ask for anything better. When the dessert came they wrote in chocolate Happy Anniversary. And it was very pretty handwriting. It added to a special evening. We can't wait to go back!!

    We took my parents here for their wedding anniversary. I had noted that when I made the reservation, and upon arriving, our table was decorated with rose petals, and there was a very nice card from the restaurant to my parents. The food was fantastic, the service was wonderful, and my parents really felt that it was a special occasion. They even brought out a dessert plate that had "Happy Anniversary" written on it with chocolate. It was expensive, but we knew it and prepared for it, and for a special occasion, is totally worth it.

  • 2nd visit, but disappointed
    OpenTable Diner Since 2012
    Dined on 2/15/2014
    The restaurant itself is very cozy. The calamari was outstanding! We were disappointed in our steaks being very underdone and had to send them back. By the time we got them back, had to eat our augrautin potato dish w/o our steaks so timing was not the greatest. Couldn't get waiter's attention to re-order beverages so had to order through Manager who brought our steaks back, which were very tasty, but also had to eat them without any other side dishes. We will return but hope to have the service we experienced with our first visit which was outstanding. We were told the waiter who made our experience so memorable, left Ruth Chris - and was very sorry we were not able to request him again as our waiter.

    This is a good option to consider if you're celebrating a special occasion. The service is outstanding. The food is good, but perhaps not as good as you'd expect for what you pay. Still, it's a solid option to consider for a once-a-year type of outing.

    This particular experience was out of the ordinary. Even though we had reservations we had to wait 20 minutes. We ordered bottled water and the waiter completely forgot to bring it. I ordered a steak and it was prepared wrong and I had to send it back, my husband ordered stuffed chicken and they forgot to stuff it with cheese. We felt very rushed and decided to just leave after we ate. This was unusual for this restaurant as we are frequent visitors. Needless to say we may take a break from Ruth Chris.

    I have eaten a lot of great food, but this was a first at Ruth's Chris. I've heard great things and it did not disappoint. My server was great, friendly, and caring. Then the food. Oh the food. That sizzling sound on the 500 degree plate brought a smile to my face. The steak was one of the best ones I've ever had. This restaurant may not be the cheapest or the most kid friendly, but it is definitely on my top lists for restaurants in Kansas City.

    Went during KCRW on 1/26 for dinner. Got a seat in the lounge which worked out perfect, since my date had to cancel. Cesar Salad was huge and enough for a whole meal. The dressing was just the right amount and shaved parmesean a perfect match. Steak was cooked perfectly with 3 Shrimp on top. Nice touch and a perfect accompaniment. Had some sizzle on the plate, and just the right amount of butter and was great dipping the shrimp into it. One of the best meals I ate all week. Duo of Chocolate Sin Cake and berries were a perfect way to end this meal. Would recommend them for their steaks as well as this restaurant.. Will return.

    The only thing that was frustrating was we showed up for our 4:15 reservation about a half hour early. Hostess told us it would 4:15 exactly (and that they weren't open yet) so we walked around the Plaza killing time. Came back about 4:05 and there people already eating in the bar area? It only takes 5 minutes for people to get food? And after checking back in with the hostess we had to wait almost 10 minutes before being seated even though there was hardly anyone else there. Hostess was just having a hard time all around. Server and server's assistant were absolutely wonderful!!

    My wife and I enjoyed a special birthday dinner for her this Saturday. The table was decorated with sparkles and sprinkles. The service was very good. The course were timed and delivered to near perfection. My wife's minestrone soup was delivered a bit cold. But the steaks were delivered hot and cooked exactly as ordered. Dessert was dressed up for her with a candle! Overall, a great birthday dinner and fantastic value for restaurant week.

    The service and food were superb. We were not rushed between courses and the service was excellent. The food was wonderful and was served hot, which made the main entree delicious. Each and every course was great. It is important to feel comfortable and to be treated well land at this establishment everything was memorable. When dessert was served they included writing (Iin chocolate) on our plate the words Happy Anniversary. It made that evening that much more celebratory.

    Got the 8oz fillet, the flavor was good but not very tender, others at our table the steaks were under cooked. Mashed potatoes were bland, mushrooms not very good and broccoli au-gratin was broccoli in a pool of butter/cheese sauce. Dessert was a chocolate truffle cake with berries, the "cake" was not a cake at all, just cool,, very rich piece of chocolate. This is not what I would expect from a prime steak house serving the top 2% of prime steaks. For the money there are many better options, and better options as well that are less expensive. The service was very good, waiter was very personable and helpful.

    This was a solid experience. It took the server and I some time to gel, but we made it. The highlight had to be the steak served on a 500 degree plate. That was a new experience, but is awesome, especially on a cold winter night. The server was able to answer my question about the history of the restaurant. There's a lobster tank near the door, so you may get to see someone at the restaurant take a lobster from there. One negative, there's not a lot of space near the front of the restaurant. I felt like I was getting in the way as I waited for my table to be ready.

    When I made the reservation, I was skeptical because I knew Ruth's Chris was a chain and didn't want to be disappointed by the experience. I had the filet minon, and it was DELICIOUS! Cooked perfectly medium rare, so full of flavor, and so tender. The side dishes that my husband and I ordered were big enough to share, and everything was so good that we ate until we were in pain, then ate some more. I will definitely keep Ruth's Chris in mind next time I want a nice dinner with my husband and don't want the debt that comes with eating at Capital Grille.

    Known for their steaks, so expect to pay for them. You won't walk out of there for under $50 per person. Appetizers were $16+ (a little much I thought for 6 shrimp) They bring out free bread, so you might just skip the appetizers all together. Steaks were delicious, sides mediocre and the restaurant was FREEZING.

    We tried Ruth's Chris during restaurant week and we were very pleased! We were a party of 6 and were seated in a back room. Our waiter, Sean, was terrific! We all got the price fixed three course dinner and everything was scrumptious! We will return for special occasions and for sure during restaurant week next year!
